DALLAS AFTERSCHOOL NEWS
DURING TIMES OF CHANGE OUR PARTNERS NEED US MORE THAN EVER
While we are all sheltering in place, Dallas Afterschool is still here working hard for students, families, and afterschool educators . We are providing innovative solutions like virtual tutoring and classes, at-home activities for kids, and community roundtables - all to connect our partners with vital resources. We are extremely grateful for the support from donors that enabled us to launch our new remote learning platform prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. For a sneak peak of our DAS360° tool created for our partners, check out this video.

VIRTUAL TUTORING IS NOW AVAILABLE
Dallas Afterschool is offering Virtual Tutoring services to help frustrated parents support their children's educational needs. This service also helps displaced afterschool educators.

There is a charge for our Virtual Turoring services, but the money goes directly to laid-off afterschool professionals, allowing them to continue to earn an income while ensuring children have access to quality education at home.

For more information on this service email tutoring@dallasafterschool.org.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
Christina K. Hanger
What a difference a month makes!

To respond to COVID-19, our first priority was to convene our 150 partner sites and listen to their needs. The most immediate concerns involved food and virtual learning resources for students and families. To meet these needs, Dallas Afterschool mobilized our team and community connections to ensure our partners and families have access to these vital resources.

As we move forward, Dallas Afterschool will continue to listen and respond to the immediate needs of the afterschool community. We will carry on, providing resources and preparing for the future, when the trauma-informed care and social emotional learning tools we are preparing will be more critical than ever for the 14,000 children we serve.

Take good care!
WE MISS YOU!
Although we didn't get to celebrate "on the playground" this year, we deeply appreciate all of our RECESS sponsors and ticket holders for their support and understanding this year. Virtual hugs to all!
